Welcome! Welcome! Please do come in. My name is Mommy; at least to my kids, but I am not telling you my real name for privacy's sake. I hope that doesn't sound to rude. But until I get to know you better, I'll keep my identity a secret. :)
Well, first I'll start off by saying that I started this blog as a way to keep out of town family updated with the happenings and going ons with us. But it has turned into such a huge blessing! I have found a few friends, found some old ones, and am just having a great time!
My interests are in my complete profile, but I'll give a little more detail.
I would also like to share that I am trusting in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross as my only means of ever being saved. His sacrifice is good enough and *is* enough to secure a place in heaven for me. There is nothing that I can or can't do, to make his sacrifice more effective.
I am a girly girl; but not prissy. I love girly things, but I still love the outdoors (if it isn't too cold ;-) ) and getting a little dirty. I rode horses when I was a teenager. I still would if I could, but at this season in my life I can't.
In real life I am shy. Probably considered a snob by some people. :) But really am not. ;-) I just don't know when it is the right time to jump in a conversation. I tend to like to listen more; especially in large groups. Now if I am one on one with you, I tend to open up more quickly, and enjoy deep and meaningful conversations. :)
On the Internet; I have no problem with my shyness. ;-)
Well, lets see. Hmmmm. Oh yes! A Giveaway! Yipppiee!! I have two giveaways!
First one: When I began my blog, I began with the basic blogger template. But as I navigated my way around blogsphere, I saw some lovely blogs. Secretly I began to wish I had a pretty unique blog to call my "own" too.
So then, I began to play around with the template. With the help of friends and my husband, I learned a *few* tricks to turn a blog into a personal place to call your own. Sooo... I have decided to try and dress up blogs for other people. I have made a couple for my friends, and they have seemed to like them.
This template that you see here now, is one that I designed. So for a giveaway, I will be giving away a "free" Dressy Blog Design. Go Here, to read all about it! :)
To win this giveaway, please comment on this post, and let me know what you have in mind for a blog design; after you have visited my blog design site. :)
Second Give Away: Two books of The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus. This book is sooo neat! Basically, it goes through the Bible Chronologically, explaining to the reader in easy to understand language what the Bible is actually all about.
There is a slight catch to this giveaway. First of all. You MUST promise me that you will read it. If you have no desire to read it then, please don't enter. The Second "catch" is that there will only be one giveaway. The winner will receive both books. One to keep (and read) and the other to give away to someone who is interested in what the Bible has to say. So you must promise not only to read it, but to give the other one away. To win, please leave a comment promising me you will read this book, and who you have in mind to give it away to.
You can enter both giveaways if you like. Just tell me in your comment. :) Also, I will try to sometime this week come to your party! :)
Thanks for coming to my party!! Have Fun visiting other blogs by going to http://www.fiveminutesformom.com
